Elizabeth Debicki to Play Princess Diana In ‘The Crown’

The final seasons of The Crown are underway and producers have found the actress who will play Princess Diana… Australian actress Elizabeth Debicki!

Netflix announced the news on Sunday that Elizabeth will play Diana in the show’s fifth and sixth seasons. She will be taking over the role from Emma Corrin, who portrays the late princess in the fourth season.

“Princess Diana’s spirit, her words and her actions live in the hearts of so many. It is my true privilege and honour to be joining this masterful series, which has had me absolutely hooked from episode one,” the actress said in a statement.

Elizabeth joins a cast which includes Imelda Staunton as Queen Elizabeth, Jonathan Pryce as Prince Philip, and Lesley Manville, who will take over the role of Princess Margaret.

We can’t wait for this! Mostly, we can’t wait for The Crown to return. We need our fix!
